None at all, however, I guess there are many Bavarians who want to secede desperately...

Here is a neat little map I found. Never heard of a separatist organization in Carinthia, though...

no, there isn't. the people that goes nearer to a "secessionist movement" in italy it's the "Lega Nord", a political party that ask for a more federalist country, in which the norther part has not to maintain economically the southern part
Lega Nord - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
sometimes they talk about the secession of north italy, that they call "Padania", but they don't have enough followers to do anything serious.
There are also some little regional movements, but they are all still really unorganized, and in practice they don't worry anyone.

In practice we don't have any region that ask for secession like Scotland of Catalonia do.

Just checked the results of the last regional elections in South Tyrol. Quite surprised that 27,2% voted for parties that explicitly separatist parties.

i admit that i wasn't thinking about that area. I don't know them so much because they already have a statute of autonomous region and are already more on their own than the other regions (and i've never read nothing on the newspapers or seen any news about this before). however the number are quite clear
Trentino-Alto Adige/S√ľdtirol provincial elections, 2013 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
(considering just the South Tyrol province, the number of votes for separatist parties are impressive)
However I think that they are asking more for an annexation with Austria, to reform the Tyrol region, than for a real secession with consequent creation of a new country.

Quebec isn't going anywhere.

They just had a vote, and they are staying.

As you mentioned in the opening post, on Thursday Scotland get to vote on whether to leave the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

It's looking pretty close at the moment.

Well, the separatists of South Tyrol are a rather chaotic bunch... Seems like they don't know themselves what they really want. Given the freedoms of the European Union and their current status within Italy itself and Austria (South Tyroleans are treated like Austrians when they apply for different things here) it can't really get any better for them.

That map is misleading - there is no secessionist movement in Yorkshire - only calls for a devolved assembly. Only Scotland is calling for independence.
